  • Statistical Oddity

    So, I was browsing through eTN a month ago (yeah, it's been on my mind this whole time) and I noticed that in the 400 heats at the NCAA Indoor, Jerry Harris, Otis Harris and Ricky Harris finished in consecutive order.

    Have 3 athletes with the same name finished in order before? If so, I wonder if they've ever gone 1-2-3. Perhaps the Clark sisters in the 800?

    Dan Lilot, what say you?

    Okay, so it's late and I'm bored.

      If it happened it must have been by someone named Davis.

        I have to agree. I don't know if this has happened before but the Davis name could be a good place to start looking.

                The DUCK brothers ( Huey, Louie, and Dewey ) finished 1-2-3 in the Duckburg Invitational 100m in 1958.

                          Now that's getting greedy. Let's get 19.28, 19.24, 19.20, (19.16), 19.12, 19.08, 19.04, and 19 flat first.

                            Well, MJ skipped 19.36, 19.48, 19.52, 19.56, 19.60 & 19.64.

                              That reminds me that I first learned what the metric distances in the Olympics were by reading about Donald Duck competing in the Duck Olympics. Yes, they actually used the correct distances in the comic book, whereas probably 95% of the nation's sportswriters at that time would have gotten them wrong.
